So then, until we learn love, or recieve love, or experience love, are we without a core. Are we 'essenseless', until that time?
Yes (again, peace to you!).
How can a learned thing, a thing which we were not, become the core of our being, our very being?
We start as empty vessels, dear one... which must be filled. And there are a lot of things for us to be filled with. Whatever is it we ARE eventually filled with... anger... hate... love... is what we ultimately become. We start being filled in this life.
I hope that helps.
Again, peace to you!
